We are working on creating and reading words with our weekly spelling pattern(s) and working on diverse aspects of comprehension related to each weekly story. Weekly spelling words consist of 6 words, but the students will be expected to change, omit, and add sounds to create new words with specific patterns. Therefore, to ensure they are not just memorizing words, we will test on 10 words. Beginning week 2 of school, we will be reading the weekly comprehension tests to our students. The first test we take will be a practice test to prepare the students for the remainder of the school year. Beginning in January, students will be responsible for reading the comprehension test on the own and the number of questions will eventually increase from 5, to 10. Please work with your child every day on reading.
